I'm particularly interested in putting together a set of e-books that would be helpful for kids (and their parents) in nations where they might have an XO-1 given to them. So things like text books, "classics" (I'm scrounging titles from the PG archives), and Independent study books I think are all good candidates.

That didn't really answer your question did it? Sorry.

The current plan is to wait and see how many XOs show up here, and how useful the device is as an ebook reader.

It's really not more of an ebook reader than a PDA or UMPC, not yet.
